We the People: Freedom of Speech
Video Contest

Sponsored by The West Virginia State Bar

Creative students could win as much as $500 for developing a video about the U.S. Constitution as part of a video contest sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Education and the West Virginia State Bar.

Participants are asked to create a 3-minute video with the theme "We the People: Freedom of Speech." The contest is open to West Virginia residents in grades 6 through 12. Entries will be divided by middle school and high school. First place in each category receives $500, while second place wins $250. The creators of the first place videos also will be invited to attend the West Virginia State Bar's annual meeting on May 9 at the Sheraton Four Points in Charleston.

Videos will be judged based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality. Entries must include parental permission for those under the age of 18.

Submissions for 2014 will be accepted from Feb. 17 to April 4.
